LSD a trip backwards


Hey Folks,

So I wanted to try and catch up before I moved forward. My plan is to start doing blogs after every day or at least week of shooting for the documentary. I started filming back in 08, due to my subjects dialysis schedule, and my own life I shoot a day or two a week on average.

Dialysis tends to leave Luis sleeping for a large chunk of the day, so on those days we don't bother filming (yet). I think we'll explore this aspect of his life in the future.

Currently my main focus is on his art and his process; I've spent several days watching him prep canvas, cover them in plaster and paint. This includes a few short time lapse exposures.

Hopefully soon I can put up some pictures from the set, pictures of the artwork and maybe some of the time lapse footage. I'm still debating if I should just put them up on my own youtube channel, or start yet another channel for this project alone (comments on this appreciated).

Please support this project join and friend on .

Stay Strong,

The Documentary and Introduction.

This is a real quick blog to say that I'll be blogging about my Documentary, I'll try to update this weekly and after any shoot days.

So let's catch you up to speed
This is Luis Sanchez, he's an amazing artist that currently lives in Los Angeles. Originally from Mexico, from the same town as Frida Kahlo. He learned to paint initially from his father and later inspired by artists like Salvador Dahli he went to school to study it.

It was in his college years Luis developed CKD - Chronic Kidney Disase.
26 million American adults have CKD and millions of others are at increased risk.

Luis Currently lives without kidneys and goes in for Dialysis treatments 4 days a week.

He is currently searching for a donor, as being the recipenant of a previous transplant he is very low on the organ donor list (estimated 7 years or so before he'd get a kidney through the list).

It is because of both his extrodianary art work and very personal story that I've choosen Luis as the subject of a feature film, and I hope I can bring awareness to the world of both his art and condition.

You can follow me here as I blog about the Doc, simply click on the label to help follow our progress and lend support (moral or otherwise). Please join us there and add us as a friend and endorse this project.

Thank you

Ah, Life

Yesterday was filled with awesome douchbaggery and then made better hanging with real friends watching improv and then drinking. Yay drinking.

Today I was looking forward to rehearsal of my new sketch. However my actress just booked a paying gig that's taking her away to Europe instead. So I'm scrambling to find a new actress, reschedule rehearsals and still get the sketch up at UCB Friday.

In the mean time it looks like I've picked up another sketch to direct and shoot for my new addition to my writing group, Renie. (she has some shiny shiny pants - how could I say 'no'?)
So I have to work that in to my schedule before the 9th (when she leaves town as well)

Plus I just rescheduled my documentary soot to tomorrow.

Looks like the word of the day is 'Reschedule' or 'Suck it'

Oh yea new video is currently being edited, I'll probably get it up tomorrow morning since I don't have practice tonight.

Stay Strong,
